"Mighty Sheffield rockers return to Donington for another headline appearance this June.

It's the news you've all been waiting for - our third and final headliners for Download 2011 have been revealed - and completing our line up are none other than the incredible Def Leppard!

Download fans will remember the band's previous headline set from 2009, which included a plethora of some of the genre's defining hits, as well as emotional performances that still hasn't been forgotten by the thousands who witnessed it.

The Sunday night slot was one of the festival's defining moments, and celebrated the truly heroic return of drummer Rick Allen following the loss of his arm in a horrific car accident.

The band proved how good you get when you spend literally decades rocking arenas, and they'll be doing it all again in 2011 - you don't want to miss this."
